with mitt romney. so the obama camp feels good. the issue would be right for the picking, a state that president obama carried in 2008 with all of the economic problems it should be a state that is easy to carry but it is still neck and neck giving the obama camp hope that some of the key battlegrounds where mitt romney should be breaking through, they believe he is not. >>heather: thank you, live from las vegas. >>gregg: the race for the white house entering a critical phase now. we are approaching the first presidential election. look at the latest fox news poll showing president obama holding his lead over governor romney. we will bring in our campaign insiders. representative john leboutillier, a former republican congressman. and pat caddell, former pollster for jimmy carter. and doug schoen former pollster for bill clinton. doug, the numbers you saw on the screen, since the conventions, the president has gained four and romney has lost two, a swing of six points. >> that is where the race is. there are some polls in the swing states showing outsize leaps for obama the ink th
battleground states, in florida, virginia, north carolina, and nevada romney is well within a striking distance on each of those. we will shortly be revisiting florida and virginia and ohio to see what impact the debate may have had. these nine states are states that obama carried all of which in 2008. he's close 0 to or above 50% in each of them. if you look at the numbers, to some degree reflecting the approval rating and the general improvement in the right destruction, wrong direction numbers that have occurred over the last several months. the president has enjoyed a unfavorable positive rating in each state. romney's likability score has been more mixed. and with the exception of virginia, north carolina, and florida, his strongest three states, his likability has been upside down. it may have changed. we're going to be clear in the mexico round of polls interested to sew if the debate has in fact reset that campaign in terms of these numbers. now you heard a lot about the pathways. that was -- [inaudible] pathways to the 270 electoral votes and how president obama probably has more pathw

out of the ten key battleground states. now romney has actually -- he has debated almost 20 times in the primary season. how does he actually change people's impression of him? particularly his likability factor. >> and we've seen that he has a little bit of a deficit, yovrl, when it comes to likability, when it comes to his favorable and unfavorable numbers compared to the president in a lot of these polls. yeah, i think part of -- a little bit of what he is going to try to do is show more of the human face, and we've seen him try to do that on the campaign trail as well. go back to that number, though. you just showed that. that is a brand new poll from abc news and the washington post, suzanne. they asked, simple as this, who is more likely to win the debates. >> with the exception of just a few cases, usually the debates don't usually change the game. we have more than half hour of the country now that is able to vote early. how confident are they that they can actually make any kind of difference? >> that's a great point there. there are ten states as of tomorrow when ohio st
is holed up in vegas for two days preparing. mitt romney will be in colorado tonight. the latest poll shows president obama and mitt romney locked in a tight race nationally. but where it counts, those battle ground states, the president still leads. and here's another interesting poll. most people think the president will win the first debate which may be why he's trying to lower expectations. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the the zingers. governor romney is good. i'm just okay. >> and paul ryan played his own version. >> president obama is a gifted speaker. he's been on the national stage for many years. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> but if all candidates are trying to lower expectations, maybe chris christie missed that memo. >> governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens. and i think that's when you're going to see this race really start to tighten and move in governor romney's direction. come th
from not only the wall street poll but swing states poll. you mentioned that mitt romney's closed the deficit among likely voters for obama from five points to three points. and in florida, he's closed from five down to one which is tied given the margin of error in our poll. in virginia, he has closed the gap from five to two. if you look at the state of ohio, a must-win state for mitt romney, mathematically possible for him to get to it without it but his strategists think he needs it. he needs to make progress there. but the fact that some of the national polls are coming back a little bit, some of the swing state polls are tightening, is a bit of an earn couragement for romney that he still has an opportunity for deficit with three or four points to change the dynamic in some way. he's got to hope that obama is not on his best game. you could have a scenario that like what happened in 2000 where george w. bush moved significantly without gore and ultimately became president. >> it's interesting that the poll also shows, as you mention, this 12% of swingable votes in the middle
with mitt romney, which is why they are undecided. in 10 states, two weeks ago, there were 6% of the voters undecided. that is a pretty significant amount. it sounds like a small number, but a pretty significant amount. did that 6% look at romney last night and say, this is somebody i feel a lot better about than i did coming into this debate. some were not paying attention and some were. for those who were not -- who were paying attention, the answer has to be yes. i think you will see a bump in the polls for romney. 67% believed that romney won the debate. that is a stunning number. usually, our side thinks our guy one and their side thinks there got one. -- thinks their guy won. it was pretty decisive. >> explain to a group of people -- i doubt there is an undecided voter in this room. what do undecided voters look like? who are they? >> the kind of people who tell the waiter to come back at a restaurant because they have not made up their mind. [laughter] when you look at undecided voters, they generally tend to be younger women than anything else. in this case, i am seeing an even divi
right now we would be at 5.4% unemployment. >> romney pounded joe biden for stating the administration' goal on a trillion dollar tax hike on those making more than 200,000 a year or family 250,000. >> people in the middle class has been squeezed or buried as the vice-president said. and romney's remarks, inelegant. 47%, he renounced it once and for all. >> completely wrong and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. >> and hoped with those remarks, romney would lay those to rest and close the door on that. to prevent that the democrats were pumping out attack ads to keep it very much. >> bret: carl cameron, on your last point, almost everyone talking about wednesday's debate says mitt romney did pretty well or won, but how he won, that's the question, as carl mentioned, that has entered the post debate spin cycle. >> governor romney may dance around his positions, but if you want to be president, you owe the american people the truth. >> stretching the truth or worse, that's how mitt romney won the debate. it's now a familiar refrain from democrat
. >> steve: last thing the obama people want is for the president to lecture mitt romney and united states of america. poem in the romney camp. usually the contender gets a bounce simply by being on the same stage that's what will happen to mitt romney tomorrow this is going to be part-two of our strategy where a lot of people have never seen mitt romney before. first roll out in the rnc. >> gretchen: people who watch honey booboo, don't know much about mitt romney. it is going to be a debate in the university of denver. brit hume had busies to say about bill oriley. >> look an incumben running with a record like this and the economy still in serious shape many people are predicting a new risession and all of the trouble he had over seas he ought to be in a lot of trouble it is surprising to many people he is ahead . we think that manage will happen. mitt romney is an acceptable enough he is an honorable decent man . people would not have problem changing on him. it hasn't happen. but it hasn't come and that's why people are, a lot of republican are down cast in this state. >> brian: remem
states as well. >> mitt romney says he wants to make sure that people can get insurance even if they have pre-existing conditions, but if he gives the states the opportunity to come up with their own plans, there's no guarantee that will do that. >> this is a politically popular thing, and now that we passed obama's health care program, that's something that any plan will provide, provisions. >> forcing states to maintain -- >> i have problems with that but i'm not running for office. that problem is that it makes it easier for people to not buy insurance until they get sick or have an accident. >> if he gives the states the flexibility, there's no guarantee that other states will go along with what massachusetts did. >> the states, also, i talked to a lot of these governors, rick scott in florida, and rick perry in texas, and you know what they're saying? just let us control the health care system. we can control these budgets. and don't forget, if you look at the state budgets, the number one driver of their budget social security medicaid. >> thank you, go nationals. >> as the presiden
in those states? >> john, both candidates obviously reacting to the jobs report today. governor romney saying this isn't a real recovery. we need more job growth. that's what he says. the president says it's a reminder that the country has come very far so far and he's not going to be turning back. so who's right? >> again, it depends on your perspective. the job growth is not as robust as either candidate would like. you need essentially 150,000, some economists say close to 200,000 jobs a month to keep a flat line and begin to turn the rate down more. look at some of the other data. if you look here's job creation. remember, this is the end of the bush administration, early obama administration, the economy was bleeding jobs. 800,000 jobs a month at one point. spurt a growth, back down again. this is what the president says, no, it's not as robust as i would like, but look at this. look at this. since 2010 the economy has been adding jobs including 114,000 in september. that's what the president would say. governor romney says that's not enough. and with less regulation, lower taxes,
on the news, but got to hear him indirectly. >> romney's hoping the debate strengthens his poll numbers in battleground states. tomorrow there's a new factor, a jobs report expected to help president obama by showing fewer layoffs. in denver, colorado, i'm steve handlesman, nbc bay area news. now for a look at how social media reacted to last night's debate. let's go to business and tech editor scott budman. >> thank you very much. last night wasn't just about which candidate won, it was also about the dominance of what we often call the second screen. social networking pulled in a huge number of debate watchers, nearly 11 million tweets sent out during the 90 minute debate. and a huge response on facebook as well. not for an awards show or superbowl, mind you, but for a presidential debate heavy on talk about the economy. if there had been any doubt about how people watch and communicate during the debate, the sheer number of people who went on silicon valley based social networks last night was huge. just ask big bird. >> in the old days you wait until the polls come out, and it's ver
are the three states where romney's been behind by more than five points in all three states, it's a place where it's the white working class male vote if you will that has been almost even there, that it's been almost a 1:1. it can't be a 1:1. romney's got to win that by big, big margins to offset the gender issue, number one, but to just get over the top there, and that's been the disconnect, you know, the obama campaign's mantra in those three states has been to define romney as out of touch rich guy. did he fix that in the debate and did folks in those three states in particular say okay i'll give this guy a second look. >> 14 points. you knew that? >> are you talking about the gender gap? >> he's talking about the notre dame game. >> 14 points? you're getting 14 points? >> look at you. you don't want it now. >> sucker. >> suddenly getting nervous. this is the market. >> how about 13? >> the opening line was 13. i'll give thaw. >> okay, let's do 13. ohio state plays nebraska. >> it's a great weekend, georgia/south carolina, florida/lsu. ♪ >> undefeated since '66, that was the t-shirts we h
gone on the offensive against mitt romney time at bain capital, outsourcing tax returns. any state we would expect that criticism of corporation and relationship to globalization would resonate it is ohio, where globalization has taken a toll. the heart of romney's argument against obama is obama hasn't helped the economy. ohio is a state it is doing better than the national of a range the auto bailout has a practical effect on people's lives, know people working in auto plant, suppliers of auto plant and the natural gas boom, a little beneath the radar has helped the unemployment rate in ohio. that is has resulted in obama dog better nationally better than nationalism people talking about the possibility romney could pull out of ohio and still win. i think that's very difficult to envision. if romney loses ohio, in particular if ohio is long gone, obama is going to win you can the votes aren't there else where to make up for the loss of those 18 electoral votes. >> nate, i want to talk about you, talk about you for a second? >> if you really want. >> you are the political blogging st
